Re: Automatic numbers lost in sort Table

G’day, all For those (like myself) who may baulk at using the full Macro Language for such things, an easy and straightforward way to preserve selections during complicated Find/Replace operations is to use one or more Clipboards. Select your chunk of text (eg, tab-delimited columns) in the original...

Re: In NW 3.0.2 callout rounded speech box becomes text box after save & quit

G’day, janeverly et al

I can confirm your observed behavior. It appears to be a bug.

Cheers,
Adrian

Re: Automatic numbers lost in sort Table

G’day, Þorvarður et al I see that you are using the “S” option in the expectation that (as the Macro Language Reference implies) you will have something selected that the Sort command can work with. That doesn’t work for me, so I don’t know whether that’s a Nisus bug or just something I don’t unders...

Re: Automatic numbers lost in sort Table

G’day, wF et al And when you’ve finished all your sorting, you can, if you wish, reinstate the “Scene” appellation. On occasions, it can be useful to employ a little sorting trick that Nisus Writer makes very easy. The idea is to permute the order of substrings in a string, perform the sorting opera...

Re: Text disappearing in a table

G’day, Kadah et al The following menu command may help in some cases:– Table > Sizing > Fit to Contents To the best of my knowledge, Tables as a whole can extend over more than one page, but individual rows cannot. Things you might try, in order to shoehorn a slab of text into a particular cell, inc...

Re: Add space after numbers without duplicate spaces

G’day, seraphim et al A macro is a chunk of code that is executed like any other command in NWP’s hierarchical menu system. You generally call a macro from the Macro menu in the top menu bar of Nisus Writer Pro. Macros are available application-wide and not properties of individual documents per se....

Re: Add space after numbers without duplicate spaces

G’day, seraphim, Þorvarður et al When performing Replace operations on multiple instances of an expression, it is crucial to know your document well, lest you end up replacing things inadvertently. In the present case, for example, Þorvarður’s solution will insert unwanted spaces in expressions such...

Re: Black Border

G’day, all First, if it absolutely has to be a black-bordered transparent box that is a widely accepted practice somewhere, I’d suggest investigating how others (with other word processors or desktop publishing software) go about it. That might offer some clue as to what one could do with Nisus Writ...

Re: Black Border

G’day, all Sad to relegate the deceased to a footnote, but…. Other ideas include:– (1) highlighting (2) raising or lowering the baseline (according to one’s religious persuasion perhaps) (3) conjoining an appropriate emoticon or pictograph (4) following the name with the conventional “ (d.)” (5) usi...

Re: Pages inside a Document

G’day, levelbest et al As you have discovered, drag-and-drop does not work, at least when you drag a PDF document directly into the usual workspace of a Nisus Writer document. However, if you first insert a Text Box (eg, from the Shapes Palette) into your Nisus Writer document, it is possible to dra...

Re: Copy disabled

G’day, Cliff et al I think these sound like two different problems. Since upgrading to Mojave, I have noticed frequent (but unpredictable) annoying intervals of keyboard unresponsiveness; however, it is not confined to Nisus Writer. The period of unresponsiveness resolves itself within (say) 5 secon...

Re: Every time I work on an existing document it saves as a copy?

G’day, jrochest, Mark et al

I’ve tried a few things (including “Open as New File”, stationery pad, and reassigning the Cmd-S shortcut to “Save Copy As…”) but can’t replicate this behavior.

Have you tried quitting and relaunching Nisus Writer?

Adrian

That is to say, I turned over all the rocks (including the Macro Language Reference) and could find nothing lurking underneath.

Re: A quicker way to delete Untitled files?

G’day, JapanRich et al Cmd-D used to be interpreted as “Don’t Save” in most applications, but things seem to have changed (unfortunately). Cmd-D in NWP now takes you to the Desktop, although it would perhaps be more logical to use Shift-Cmd-D for this, in line with the Finder. You can navigate the C...

Re: PDF Page Numbering Retention

G'day, Philip et al There is no easy solution here. A lot depends on the formatting of the PDF document (eg, with respect to headers, footers, page numbers, location of images, etc). In this situation, I myself would not merely try to fix the pagination on my own (original) RTF file. To do so would ...
